  • McDonald's reports 3.3% slide in comp sales for Q3 [View news story]
    Lots of "Gourmet" burger chains springing up in my area over the last several years. One of the first (and best IMO) is "Five Guys", where you can buy a single-patty burger with your choice of 18+ toppings for around $4. Although this burger may be slightly smaller than some competitors, the freshness, flavor and price pretty much blows away the Big Mac & 1/4 pounder.

    Chipotle Mexican Grill also has menu offerings that offer stiff competition in terms of flavor, freshness & price.

  • IBM takes down futures [View news story]
    The reason IBM's miss moved the futures market so much is because holders of many other blue chip, financially engineered companies stock just realized that at some point stock buybacks financed with debt issuance have to be backed up by organic growth...and if they are not, they are worth a lot less.

  • Bullard suggests delaying end to QE [View news story]
    They are just goosing the market higher on especially down days with rumors of more QE. That's why the futures tanked even more this am after the low unemployment number - no bad news or hope for QE there.

  • Airline stocks headed for more heavy losses [View news story]
    Quote: "We believe there is scientific and epidemiologic evidence that Ebola virus has the potential to be transmitted via infectious aerosol particles both near and at a distance from infected patients, which means that healthcare workers should be wearing respirators, not facemasks."

  • Airline stocks headed for more heavy losses [View news story]
    "an illness that's not even airborne".

    There were some findings from The Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) disclosed today that it may in fact be possible for ebola to be transmitted via the air. That story was released at about the same time the S&P broke support in the afternoon and the airline stocks started selling off after that.

    CIDRAP is a global leader in addressing public health preparedness and emerging infectious disease response. Founded in 2001, CIDRAP is part of the Academic Health Center at the University of Minnesota.

  • Retuers: Banks under regulatory scope over auto lending [View news story]
    Perhaps a case where regulators trying to get ahead of the curve confuses everyone, as we are used to them regulating from the rear view mirror after the accident.

  • GT Advanced Technologies: Can Current Shareholders Walk Away With Any Value? [View article]
    Thanks, that's an interesting scenario if it turns out to be true.

    One would think that non-disclosure agreements could somehow be separated from proper disclosure to their shareholders. In other words they could have let shareholders know the $hit was going to hit the fan, but that they could not say why due to their non-disclosure agreement.
